If you’ve read that title above, you more or less already know what to expect from Gloom – nostalgic pixel art, a terrifying setting inspired by Lovecraftian horror, and challenging gameplay akin to Dark Souls. Gloom, created by the two-man team of Aleksi Sirviö and Valtteri Hanhijoki, aims to offer a random-generated roguelike experience that should prove to be a constant challenge to all kinds of players, with plenty of weapons and tools to find and use against a horde of monstrosities. The visuals are looking mighty gloomy, if you’ll excuse the pun, in a way that reminds me of 2010’s Limbo. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one. Gloom is scheduled to launch on PC, Mac, and Linux in the spring of 2017.
